Indie Wed is a THE alternative to the traditional bridal expo. For those in the midst of wedding planning, Indie Wed offers a one stop shop for all the best wedding artisans and professionals from the Midwest and beyond.

“HOW DO YOU WANT YOUR PARTY TO ROAR?
Indoors or outdoors? 20 or 15,000 people? One room or the whole Museum? Any way you want to do it, we’ve got it covered.”
Last but not least, the wonderful folks at the Harley-Davidson Museum® are our gracious venue hosts for the evening. This unique, industrial inspired location is the perfect setting for our equally unique event.
We are also fortunate to have generous media support for the fabulous Wisconsin Bride, the region’s premier bridal magazine and website.
When & Where
Indie Wed, LLC
Indie Wed was founded by Kelly Maron Horvath in 2009. Kelly owns another business, Paper Stories, which is a local design and letterpress shop that focuses on creating innovative and stylish paper goods that are also environmentally responsible. Wanting to showcase Paper Stories' unique invitations but frustrated with the traditional wedding expo, Horvath decided to organize a special event specifically for independent designers and couples with an independent spirit.
Indie Wed, LLC and Paper Stories believe that it is also important to be socially responsible and regularly donate a portion of their profits in the form of micro-loans to entrepreneurs in developing nations as well as funding classroom projects in the U.S.
